We got out for our first hike of the year the other day. It was just a short bit of a hike since the water in the stream was too high to cross that day. It looks like a hike that would be fun to do several times throughout the season as there are huge groups of mountain laurel as well as rhododendrons, and who knows what else?! And if you can cross the stream and go further there is a waterfall to enjoy. Hiking in Virginia in late March was such a delight. We are used to Mud season in NY’s Adirondacks that makes hiking a challenge in the spring time.
Here are just a few glimpses of a lovely time in the woods.
